The lights are usually the first things that I notice in a car, so you could imagine how difficult it was for me to look at this every day.

This kind of damage is bound to happen if a car is used daily for three decades. Again, looking for parts up in Baguio was really hard, but with a little luck I was able to score a set of original turn signals--along with the corner garnish. I love looking at these lights.

The thing about original signal lights (in my case, those made by Koito) is that they do not fade like replacements do. The amber is also much deeper, and when the signals are flashing they are very visible. Here\'s one last shot of how the wagon\'s face looked like two years ago.

I have to say thanks to Galant enthusiast Pete Daza for holding on to those signal lights for me. I hope to feature his cars on this blog, soon! More posts to come!
